So if you’re here you probably wanted to learn a little about the face that is behind saidjess.com
I’m Jess, said Jess.
I am in my early 30s and I live in Australia.
My blog is a journey of a woman who is still finding her place in life (that woman being me, I’m not like, stalking anyone … well, not now). Personally, I will be discussing things such as dealing with anxiety, OCD and going through the cancer journey with my Mum who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer – and of course other bits and pieces that go along with life.
You’ll also find fair few products and reviews here; I like to blog about the things that I like; especially books. Books have become my escapism and being a champion of all things fictional has been a huge passion of mine these past few years.
By day I work in finance and by night I freelance to various street press publications while tending to my very first novel.
Said Jess .com is my little corner of the internet to brazenly share the ups and downs of life and of course the moments that bring us great joy.
The simple joys in my life: my beautiful, kind partner, my little puppy, spending time with my Mum, my best friends, writing, escaping with a great book, coffee or peppermint tea, days off, blogging, playstation 4, hanging out in my zen office, anything Pandora (jewelery), Netflix, Jussie Smollett, Michael Jackson and anything MJ related, great music, Rugby League (Melbourne Storm), exercise, hanging with my loved ones, a good concert/gig and or a couple of chill-out drinks with my partner.
This is where all of my writing takes place: in my zen office (as I lovingly refer to it as)
And here is a bunch of boring questions my friend sent me to put on my “about Jess” page because she literally doesn’t care that I’m not 15 and on MySpace anymore.
What do you do to relax at the end of a stressful day? Go for a brisk walk, get changed, get in the shower and scrub the day out of my pores.
Where did your last kiss take place and with whom? What am I, 16? (No, I think we established I’m not) … dunno, I don’t count my kisses… I know it was from my boyfriend and was probably when he got home from work? I guess.
Do/did you get into trouble a lot at school? Only in high school – comparatively to my primary school experience, I got in to trouble because I was trying to be hilarious and stand out so people would think I was cool — but I wasn’t like, that asshole kid who threw chairs at teachers and/or other children or anything.
Do you enjoy your job? If unemployed, are you content being so? I have been both working and unemployed — and I was never content being unemployed. My job has its challenges and its ups and downs, but I take pride in everything I do and try to appreciate the fact that I’m employed; even on the bad days.
Do you often pick up on double entendres and innuendos? This is my life. I have the mind of a 14 year old boy, I can make a “that’s what she said” moment out of anything.
Have you ever been offered drugs but declined? yes and yes. yes and no, no and no. And so on and so forth.
Have you ever met someone who has completely altered your way of thinking? Yes, many times. But I’m also pretty staunchly rooted in my own convictions.
What is something you have given a lot of thought to lately? Life; my purpose — seems a little deep, but that’s where I’m at.
Do you usually initiate hugs? Only with my boyfriend. It usually happens in form of a text message, “excuse me, you cuddle me now, thanx,” and then I put the phone down and wait to hear footsteps approaching. I’m a pretty demanding asshole some of the time.
Do you have any tattoos. Do you want any/more? I have three tattoos and I plan to get more. In fact, I’m waiting to see my cousin next and we will get inked together.
Are you mentally strong? I believe that even though I suffer some aspects of mental health illness, I accept it, maturely deal with it, continue to allow it to be treated as the medical issue that it is – that I am mentally strong.
Are you physically strong? Yeah man, I throw a really hardcore backhand. So don’t cross me.
Do you think you’re a good person? I try to be a good person. I don’t want people to look upon me and think, “yeah, she’s a total asshole all the time, how does she even have people who love her…” But, I’m pretty sure my best friend is honest enough to tell me that that’s the case.
So yeah, said Jess website is where you can come and read about my crap.
